I recently purchased an acer aspire ax3000 I also bought a belkin easy transfer cable for w7. Win7 doesn't suport outloook.


I can receive emails in win live mail but not send them. Any ideas how to change settings to get over this problem

The message I receive is

Check your settings carefully against this checklist - it's for Windows Mail, but will be the same for Windows Live mail.

As you go through the above link note that Authentication should not be ticked. If after that the password is still causing problems you can reset your password from here:
